”COMPOSITE RESTORATIONS IN ANTERIORS, FROM SINGLE TOOTH TO COMPLEX CASES ”
Dr. Ormir Bushati – Albania
Introduction: The anterior region of oral cavity constitutes a delicate sector in terms of
appearance and aesthetics of the patient and thus increases the credibility and stress directly to
the clinician. With the evolution of dental materials, mainly aesthetic layering composites and
the concept of adhesive, miniinvasive and biomimetic dentistry, the concept of recreating the
function and aesthetics in the anterior region has now changed, giving greater opportunity to
direct work that resembles in the most natural way what God or Nature has created. This
enlarges the possibility for more complex restorations, but at the same time increases the
difficulty of the clinican’s work as it must operate under the conditions of direct oral treatment by
undergoing the proper reproduction of the shape, color and adaptation of the replaced structure.
Purpose: Being familiar with the tooth characteristics and composite properties, where the
clinician should focus, in order to have a successful result.
Methods and materials: Resources from literature and analysis of various clinical cases of
different age groups and situations were documented with photographs. Different angles of light
are used to better understand the color and tooth anatomy of restorations. The elab protocol with
polarized filters was used to better understand the color and light.
Results: In more than 200 anterior direct and indirect cases solved with composite restorations,
within a period of 7 years, we have had 3 fragment fractures from the uncareful biting and 5
cases of composite staining.
Conclusion: By clearly knowing the anatomy and structure of anterior teeth, the preparation
method, the composite characteristics, their rigorous layering, their finishing and polishing, we
can achieve natural results and high aesthetics in less invasive way for the teeth and most
affordable way for the patients.
